Points don't really factor into anything anymore.
We use to have an ATS store for points, but when they redesigned the site last year all that went away.
Now it's factored into your WATS Index, which is a list of all the top members as well as your Karma, which is some weird thing I don't quite understand.
I'd say points are a status thing now, but too much people put weight into that sort of thing around here.

Guess I hit a sore spot with the points, however it seems rather childish to me to want to possess or blindly trust those with more flags. I mean why would you care what strangers think based on their time on ATS? Talk about double reverse psychology!
Not really. I really don't care what you think. You haven't really proven worthy of notice. I was simply using your post as an example and a vehicle to explain the system to others who may be reading the thread. Your post speaks for itself. Your attitude is out there for all the world to see. That you are proud of it is part of the issue.
I was asking for a mod, btw.
Dear me! I guess you don't always get what you ask for.
